So I have a budget of $1100 dollars, and here is what I have so far:

Power supply: Thermaltake TR-500

Video card: sapphire radeon HD 6850

Motherboard: Asus p8Z77-V LX Intel series

Case: Ultra Xblaster mid-tower V2

Ram: Corsair vengeance desktop memory kit 8GB

Processor: Intel i5-2500k unlocked processor

Hard drive: corsair BK force series 3 120GB SSD

So is this any good at all? Am I missing something super important (OS is going to be windows 7 64 bit)?

Thanks in advance.
There are two kinds of people. The ones that ask questions to find answers, and the kind that ask questions to make excuses.

this is not an $1100 build. anyway, mobo sucks. choose another (asrock Z68 extreme 3 gen3, biostar TZ77XE3). psu sucks, choose another (corsair cx430, antec neo eco 400w etc). case sucks choose another (NZXT gamma, beta, source 210, HAF912). get crucial M4, samsung 830, ocz vertex 4 for an SSD. get a 7850.
